In some instances, depending on the needs of the patients, in the Westlake Village area, we may suggest photofacial treatments.

Photofacials are done with a specialized pulsed light system and is administered through a special device. They can be used to treat several concerns, including:

  • Skin redness (rosacea)
  • Brown spots
  • Sun spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles

Photofacials are completely comfortable for patients and do not require the application of topical anesthetics.

There are several benefits to having photofacials done. Photofacials can address a myriad of skin concerns. It is well tolerated, does not require anesthetics, and it is completely comfortable. Patients can enjoy one or two treatments for desired results, and may complete regular photofacials every year to maintain the beautiful results they have achieved.

Results appear over the course of time. Initially, the treatment areas may begin to darken or redden within the first few days. Then the areas may flake off or fade, resulting in a clear complexion. Patients see significant improvement in just a few weeks, and over several months, the skin may continue to become more enhanced and beautiful.
